RE theme

We will start the term with the topic of ‘Beginnings’.  The children will explore how each day presents us with different opportunities for beginnings and that we can approach beginnings with a wide range of feelings and attitudes.  Towards the end of the half term we will look at the sacrament of Baptism.  The children will learn about the signs and symbols used in Baptism.
